I create because it is part of my vision, which I believe artists are given by God.
The Church has denied the value of visions of its painters and sculptors for many years. Some congregations consider any dream, or vision, which is spoken, or written, of some great import. Yet when artists contribute theirs in a visual form, we are often scorned, overly examined and met with suspicion.
Fortunately music has been encouraged to grow and experiment with the times in Church settings.
While I am happy for the musicians, it is time to stand up and defend our worth as members of the body of Christ, and asked to be considered people of value, with something important to contribute.
I am not exactly certain how make that happen, except to offer it and pray!
